May 2012

I have officially heard it all!  A 2010 study suggested that just like clothing and accessories, we women pick meals to enhance our desirability to the opposite sex.  In other words, we order low-calorie foods when dining in mixed gender groups.  Apparently meals like salads give off the impression that we are ‘healthy’ and ‘take […]


Today marks the start of the week where I keep saying “It’s my last ___________ as a 23-year old”.  Just for the record, today is the last Monday that I’ll ever put up a post as a 23-year old :)!  Birthdays aside, I wanted to discuss my experience on Body for Life (BFL).  Although it […]


Peeling a pomegranate

by Khushboo on May 25, 2012

Is it called Friday because your brains are fried by the time it rolls around?  Something to ponder about…or not :).  Unlike last week, I don’t have a list of my favorites for the week but I will share with you my current favorite snack: Pomengranate seeds with plain yogurt I am slowly developing an […]


Just my cup of tea

by Khushboo on May 23, 2012

Want to hear read something ironic?  I lived in England for 8 years yet went for my first “high tea” in Mumbai.  I’m kicking myself now, but I guess after walking by places like the Ritz and Fortnum & Mason on a daily basis, the novelty kinda wore off.  Call me low-maintenance but I was […]


To eat or not to eat?

by Khushboo on May 21, 2012

Happy Monday, All!  Today is not just any Monday for me…it actually marks my last week of Bill Phillips’ Body For Life.  It seems like I’ve been following the plan forever.  As I had to take a couple of breaks during the 12 weeks because I was traveling, it’s taken a little longer than expected- […]


Friday Favorites

by Khushboo on May 18, 2012

How is it already the 3rd Friday of May?  In typical fashion, the month is once again flying.  I’m kinda hoping the rest of May passes at snail’s pace, because then all hell clouds breaks loose.  Most people are complaining about global warming and how overly hot Mumbai has become but I’m all for it!  […]


Helping a sista out

by Khushboo on May 16, 2012

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’ll know that I love to run.  Although not every run is rainbows & unicorns, I love the rush of conquering a new distance/speed, the therapeutic effect of each run,  and that overall sense of achievement which every run brings.  I’m yet to sign up for […]


Chances are when you hear the word “China” or think of visiting, Beijing & Shanghai are the first places that come to mind.  I know that I always thought that one of those would be my destinations upon my first visit to the country.  However when Sachin & Shyamla (my brother-in-law and sister) moved to […]


Buddy up!

by Khushboo on May 11, 2012

When it comes to working out, I’ve always been more of a, for lack of a better term, loner. I like to get in, do my thing, and get out.  In other words, I rather be efficient with my workouts and save the chit chat for another time.  I’m also naturally more of a morning […]
